Where can I get the replacement blades for the hand wipers?
I got one from somebody once and it was the military kind with the little hook in the middle. It never fit well and doesn't really wipe.

Sean,

Two quick questions. What is the diameter and thickness of the washers? Secondly is the knob on the control handle cast on or a separate piece?

Thanks!

The washers are about 1/2 inch across and the handle knob is cast into the arm.

I got my replacement blades from the wiperman, (Fickens, or Flicken, something like that) I too went through the incorrect blades from a couple of vendors, their answer was. "I've sold hundreds of those, never had a complaint" needless to say I stopped using those particular vendors.

Does the wiperman have a web site or location to contact him with?
Thanks.

I'm sure those flat washers are not original, they're way too large for the shaft.  And interestingly, the parts list only calls for 1 washer (I'd presume on the inside, as the outside has a flange).

The knob/handle is one-piece cast.

Interesting, I have a handle that matches the dimensions in your photo however it does not have the knob - it is a separate piece. I wonder if it is a repro?

Thanks Jerry and Sean!

The wiper blade with the hook in the middle is for the vacum wiper, not the manual one. The manual blade is the same as for the manual wiper for MB/GPW often  listed on epay.

You're right!  It is a separate piece.

With the rust & paint & dirt on it, it appeared solid, but after scraping it off, I can see it's a separate piece.

Don't know if it's threaded on, or crimped on and intended to spin.  What's the end on yours like?

Sean,

The end is pretty plain, I would say that it must be some kind of crimp or press fit. I can try and get a detail photo or two later on this weekend if you are interested.

Mule had an original hand wiper that Lefty inherited. The handle knob is a separate piece and appears to be of a different metal also like nickle or something and seems solid rather than plated. It has the original blade too. The blade looks like the one Sean posted and is rivited to the arm.
 
I've looked and looked for a correct blade to no avail. If found how would you attatch it? Some have suggested a small screw. I've considered trying to spread the blade a bit, remove the old rubber and then replacing just that, re-crimping the blade. That way saving the original rivit attatchment.

The original is a hollow rivet.  NOS replacements (when they show up) come w/a split rivet to reattach it.

I don't think you'd need to spread the blade metal.  Just scrape/pick out the old rubber & glue a new piece in place.  That's what I'm planning to try.

Much better idea! I'll try cutting a piece from an old inner tube and glue'er in. Thanks again.

Hi guys,

CJ-2A hand wiper looks exactly as MB/GPW hand wipers. I replaced the complete blade for NOS that were advertised at the G503 forum.

If I brought to Argentina, I guess would be easer for you obtain them into the USA !
The hard work is replace the rivet, but I guess can be done without any problem.

Cheers and good luck.

Hi Sean,
blades are exactly same as original. I can't tell you know because I'm very far from the jeep.
I will try to find the name of seller. Maybe he has more
Cheers,
Charlie

Sean here are some photos of my handle minus the knob.





Looks like that small crease in the first photo must line up with a notch in the knob and with some kind of press fit that is how they must have did it. Hope this helps.

So the knob was press-fit or crimped, and not intended to spin.

Thanks Frenchy!

That's a good photo Frenchy posted. Wondered about that attatchment myself. If you notice on the two we posted you can see a dimple on the knob that must go into that groove. So wouldn't that be called "staked" in rather that press fit? Just curious about the terminology. Also do you think the knob is nickle or what?

I don't think that's a dimple, but where the casting sprue broke off.  It is perpendicular to the mold parting line.  Mine is not located over that groove, but offset 40-45 degrees.

I suspect the "groove" was to deform the rod out-of round, & cause interference press fit to the knob round hole.

Quote Also do you think the knob is nickle or what?
Well, I don't know how to identify different metals, but doubt it would be pure nickel.  Can nickel be cast?

It is non-magnetic, so not steel.  Might be pot-metal, like other small cheap pieces.

My blade is exactly like the ones posted, 9 1/2" long. I have it cleaned out and need a rubber. I note that the bottom end is about 1/8" thick and probably around 9/16 to 5/8" wide. Did you have a place to buy just the rubber Sean?
